In this paper I discuss arts-based, autoethnographic research and introduce methods for studying identity construction and visual knowledge/understanding. Included is discussion of self as a subject of study. The paper suggests self-reflexive and artistic methods applicable to all levels of inquiry focusing on construction of cultural identity. In the final section I propose that applying self-reflexive artistic practices to multicultural art education can further develop our understanding of diversity.
